It was one of the rare incidents that happen in cricket. A cricketer died after being hit by a ball on the head. Raman Lamba, the former Indian cricketer, died at the age of 38 when he was hit hard by a ball. He was fielding at forward short leg without a helmet during a club match between Lamba's club Abahani and Mohammedan in Bangladesh. He was hit so hard that the ball rebounded to the wicket keeper. He died three days after this incident. Sachin Tendulkar made his test debut in 1989 when Lamba was in the national team.
George Summers(Nottinghamshire) and Abdul Aziz(Karachi wicket-keeper) were the other two cricketers who died as a result of on-filed injuries.
